I can’t tell you how excited I am about the upcoming release of Star Wars: Armada. I spent countless hours over the years playing Star Wars: Rebellion, and this game has a very similar scale and feel to it, but with some beautiful tabletop miniatures. Imperial Star Destroyers defending a vital space station from an assault fleet of Rebel Nebulon-B Frigates and starfighters? Sign me up twice please!
I’ll have lots more to say about it once I can get my hands on the game, which appears to launch on or around April 22nd, 2015; but today I just wanted to let you all know that I’ve found an amazing deal on the base set for the game.
Star Wars: Armada on Amazon is currently going for only $53.96, a far cry below the $99.95 MSRP price (Edit: This deal has since been taken down). Now, with that being said, I still believe heavily in supporting your Friendly Local Game Store, and I’ll personally be buying one of everything at retail for that exact reason, but I probably wouldn’t have purchased a second core set without this deal, and I’ll be using that set as a loaner to get more people into the game, and get more people to buy it locally. It’s a win-win in my book.
